Revelations follow undercover investigation into beatings and hate lessons at madrassas in Britain
More than 400 children have complained of physical abuse at Islamic schools in the UK, but only two people have been convicted, figures revealed today.
And just 10 of the 420 cases made it as far as court, raising fresh concerns over the use of corporal punishment in Muslim classes.
The issue was first highlighted in February, when a shocking documentary secretly filmed teachers in a part-time faith school hitting children and delivering lessons in hatred and segregation.
